Tom Pelphrey

Biography

New Jersey native Tom Pelphrey studied conservatory theater at Rutgers University after catching the drama bug in high-school productions, and drew the attention of a CBS executive via participation in a Rutgers collegiate drama revue. The network introduced the actor to Rob Decina, casting director of Guiding Light, who in turn tapped Pelphrey for the part of Jonathan Randall on that long-running soap opera. For his contributions to the program, Pelphrey netted one Daytime Emmy nomination and one win (in 2006) for Outstanding Younger Actor. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
